Not long ago, most infants took their naps on the porch, in their bassinets or prams. My mum had such a pram that I took leisurely naps in among the fresh air and warm sun. The Vintage Baby Set was created as a throw back to that time when little ones needed a complete outfit to keep them warm and dry. It features an easy fair isle pattern and a twisted rib bodice on the cardigan for an heirloom feel.
Cardigan: Body is worked from the bottom up, flat, seamed at the shoulders. Sleeves are worked flat, seamed and sewn into place.
Leggings: Leggings have a folded waistband with an I-cord tie, knit seamlessly, in the round. Short rows across backside with a gusset. Each leg is worked seamlessly, in the round.
Bonnet: Bonnet is worked from the forehead to the crowd, seamlessly and flat. Chin strap is in garter stitch.
24 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in Stocking Stitch with US 2.5 (3mm) needles
I was 4 when my grandmother taught me to knit. I have since enjoyed all sorts of needle work; crochet, cross stitch, needlepoint, quilting. However, my love is knitting and designing seamless and classic garments for children :)
